I ran across an interesting conversation on a website called Avvo. From what I can tell, it's a website in Missouri where you can ask questions that are answered by lawyers. Someone asked the lawyer peanut gallery if it is OK to drive a lawnmower on a public road in Kansas City, Missouri. The answer? Nope.

This made me wonder what else you can't do on a lawnmower? Here's what I found. NOTE: I am not a lawyer, so talk to a real one for real legal advice. This is based on research I did. Any words I say or type are for entertainment purposes and hopefully interesting and accurate, but it's not like I have a law degree sadly.

1. You can't legally ride a lawnmower on a public road in Missouri as stated in the link above.

2. You can't operate a lawnmower if you're intoxicated.

3. You're legally not supposed to operate any kind of lawnmower unless you're 12 years of age or older. For a riding lawnmower, you need to be 16 years old or older according to Yard Troop.

4. You can't have more than one person on a riding lawnmower.

5. If your drivers license is suspended, you can operate a lawnmower on a yard, but not on a road. This actually refers back to rule #1 which does not allow anyone to drive a lawnmower on a public road though.

6. Hot Cars said you really can't legally drive a lawnmower on a sidewalk since that's technically city property. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that it's doubtful a police officer is gonna tackle you on a mower if it happens, but it's technically the law.

7. You can't drive a lawnmower on a highway. This should be the point where common sense kicks in and no one would try it, but you'd be surprised.

8. You can't leave grass clippings on a roadway. It's especially dangerous for 2-wheeled vehicles like motorcycles, but always a no-no to mow your yard and leave the clippings on a roadway. Yes, it can get you busted.
